AARP North Dakota sent out a questionnaire to gather information to help older people and those caring for them protect themselves from the coronavirus and help prevent it from spreading to others. This graphic summarizes the responses.
In North Dakota approximately 68,000 family caregivers provided an estimated 57 million hours of care – worth a staggering $980,000 – to their parents, spouses, partners, and other loved ones in 2017, according to state data available in the latest report of AARP’s Valuing the Invaluable series.
AARP is hosting a telephone town hall on Tuesday, Nov. 12, to help caregivers across the state learn to better balance their work and personal lives with their caregiving duties.
Caring for a parent, spouse, or other loved one can be a 24/7 job that is emotionally, physically and financially difficult. That’s why AARP works tirelessly to support family caregivers, striving to make your big responsibilities a little bit easier.
North Dakota has become the latest state to add safeguards to its long-term care resident rights law to address privacy, consent and electronic monitoring in long-term care facilities. These rights extend to residents of nursing homes, basic care and assisted living facilities and swing-bed facilities.
